I was comparing two contemporary cameras, the 5DIII and 6D, not a 5-year old camera that has been replaced. But yes, the 6D is a fantastic camera, for it's price. My Subaru is a fantastic car for its price, as well. It can go through over a foot of snow on the driveway, with drifts as high as the hood of the car, if I need to get out before the plow service comes. It even has heated seats to keep my butt warm. But a well-equipped Volvo (5DIII) would be better, and a well equipped Mercedes (1D X) would be better still. The point is, while the Subaru meets my needs as a car, the 6D does not meet my needs as a camera.
Glad we can agree on something! It's amusing you compare the 5D3 to a Volvo, thanks for that!
To each their own. If my needs are for a rally car, I'll take the Suby over the Volvo or Merc any day of the week.
Speaking of rally cars...the only channel on directv that seems to show any of WRC now is 214, and that's in standard def...very soft and letterboxed. Now that Speed channel has gone extinct, it's time for someone else to make a new speed channel and do it right this time!
